Collab with BASIK1

Had a blast working with @basik1. We began by each drawing half of a composition, passing it off, and finishing each other's drawings. I've never had the opportunity to make art with another graphic designer in this way before. It was daunting at first, but turned fun fast. It was a great way to learn from each other, and design some pages for Mike Giant's #artnight zine.

Art Night with Mike Giant

Like every Wednesday, it was a special art night hosted by Mike Giant. Except last night, Mike pulled out his old books and showed us the very first sketches and graphics he designed for Think Skateboards in the early 90's, and collages made later with his graffiti writing. I only took a couple of photos as I sunk into Mike's memories. But, I do remember someone asking him, "Do you still write graffiti and he said, "not really any more, I killed the game".

Art Night Zine, Issue 2 with Mike Giant

Every Wednesday night in Boulder, CO. the always inspiring, Mike Giant hosts art night, and some incredible people show up. Some of these open studios are dedicated to making zines, with everyone contributing art to fill the pages. 

Here are some spreads that my art appeared on last week. The zine took on a life of its own, and ended up being 40 pages. Too much fun!
